Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. - I Corinthians 13: 4-7

Jemma McKenzie-Brown: Zac was a huge practical joker on the set of HSM3. He loved to throw water bombs on people, which was really funny. He never got me, but Vanessa tried to at one point. She ran into my trailer with a water bomb, but she fell over and it went all over her!

"Zac. You Give me Strength, always have my back, and thank you for everything. You're amazing." - Vanessa Hudgens

"I grew up in the business, so I was used to putting on makeup every day," says the 19-year-old star of the High School Musical movies, who went without makeup for her PEOPLE photo shoot. "Just recently I've learned to be okay with myself without wearing makeup. I think it was a special someone telling me that I didn't need it. I started taking care of my skin and realized I didn't need as much as I thought I did." - Vanessa Hudgens (People Magazine)

"I'm such a hopeless romantic," she says. "You can feel the emotions Gabriella has for Troy. Zac and I have done three movies together now, and we can basically do anything in front of each other. We're so comfortable, we're not afraid to take chances." – Vanessa Hudgens

“Vanessa caught my eye straight away. She simply outshines all other girls because of her strong personality. I don’t know if I believe in love at first sight, but I do believe in two people having chemistry straight away. I don’t know what it was with Vanessa but we kind of clicked from the very beginning. She is not just a lovely girl, she is also a sexy and desirable woman! Vanessa is just a wonderful person. I can laugh and talk with her and, most of all, we have loads of fun!” - Zac Efron

"Vanessa’s such a beautiful human being. She’s so humble, so nice, and I think the finest kind of acting is the one when you show so much emotion but so subtly and that’s how talented she is. She is a very down to earth human being and this is the first chance she’s really been given to really show her potential, and she’s really done it well." - Alex Pettyfer (on Vanessa)

“You can’t describe the feeling of being in love - when you meet someone who makes you a better person.” - Zac Efron

'If you really love someone, you shouldn't have to work at it. You finish each others' sentences and have the same sense of humor.' – Vanessa Hudgens

"The second I met Zac I thought he was a really cool guy. It's hard not to have chemistry with someone who is quite attractive. We're both supportive of each other, but we're doing our own things, too. We have different projects we're working on." - Vanessa Hudgens

"Vanessa is very fun loving." – Zac Efron

"Vanessa just brings sparkle to everything." – Zac Efron

"Working with Vanessa was a dream come true," - Zac Efron

"When you get to sing with someone you care about, it's magical." – Vanessa Hudgens

"It's fun to work with him. He's really sweet, and singing all of songs is always a blast." – Vanessa Hudgens (on Zac Efron)

“I think that at that time, in that environment…it most definitely was love at first sight. I’ll never answer that for anyone else…except for Ashley.” - Zac Efron (on Vanessa)

"If people don’t like me for whatever I do, for being me, then that’s too bad. I don’t want to change to be something that I’m not for other people to like me." - Vanessa Hudgens

"He always makes me happy. He literally knows exactly what to do to make me laugh." - Vanessa Hudgens (on Zac Efron)

"She has a lot of talent. I think she will blow them all of their socks with her next projects. She is an actress who people have to trust in the future." - Alex Pettyfer (On Vanessa Hudgens)

"They have an unspoken connection that you can't really describe, and it shows" - Ryan Stanborn (On Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens)

"They are perfect for each other" - Corbin Bleu (On Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens)

"Two people fell in love" - Monique Coleman (on Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens)

"You know, nobody is perfect..I live and learn...and it's extremily unfortunate, but...I'll survive" - Vanessa Hudgens

Zac describes their relationship with one unlikely word: ordinary. "And I cherish all the ordinary things in my life. We're stay-in types - some food, a movie. But tonight we're going to a drive-in to watch scary movies because it's Halloween. We love to just be together, as much as possible." (On his relationship with Vanessa; From Glamour UK)

"There are these beautiful relationships, it's what one person will do and what they're willing to sacrifice for freedom and friendship." - Jamie Chung on Sucker Punch

"Love yourself before you can love anyone else... stay true to yourself." -Vanessa

"You can dream ahead to the future but its really just about making the best out of what you have at that moment." - Vanessa Hudgens

"If people don’t like me for whatever I do, for being me, then that’s too bad. I don’t want to change to be something that I’m not for other people to like me." - Vanessa Hudgens

"Confidence is Key. Sometimes you need to look like you're confident even if you're not." - Vanessa Hudgens

"My favorite part about being a Candie's girl is being able to just be myself. I don't have to put on a front for Candie's. I get to be silly, wild Vanessa all my friends know, in front of the camera!" - Vanessa Hudgens

"I know what the worst invention ever is. The internet. I think it's ruining everyone, and it just makes everybody way too accessible – it just takes away the glamor and mystery from our business." - Vanessa Hudgens

If you are at all uncomfortable with this, please do not read. I do not want to have to wade through homophobic reviews.
